SOME GAVE ALL & a Super BIG Thank You to Natasha in Oz

Hey Everyone,

It's been awhile since I've posted here.  Will have to get back into it, Christmas is just around the corner!!!

First off, I have to say a SUPER BIG THANK YOU to Natasha in Oz!!!  I won her giveaway last week of a scrapbooking program, My Memories Suite version 2!  I was so amazed, I had to re-read her email to me several times.  I even check out her blog, 5 Minutes Just for Me

Yes, there it was!  My name, my blog, and I had won!  Wow!  Thank you so much, Natasha!

Now, for my song selection this week for Natasha's Pinning and Singing Weekend Party, I've gone Patriotic. 

This Sunday is Patriot's Day here in America, and also the 10th (yes, it's been 10 years!) anniversary of the attacks on our country: The World Trade Center (Twin Towers), Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon.

This song, SOME GAVE ALL, is about all the people who gave their lives since September 11th, 2001.  Maybe you know someone who perished in one of the three attacks.  My deepest sympathies go out to all of you!

Flight 93 hit home for me, literally.  Shanksville is only about 15 miles from where my mother and all her family grew up.  My Aunt Sally and her family still lived there at the time.  Believe me, I was worried about them and their safety. 

I'm so deeply sorry for the lives lost on Flight 93, but so deeply grateful for their courage and patriotism in giving their lives so the hijackers could not fulfill their objective of crashing the plane into the Capitol or the White House!
I'll never forget the story of Todd Beemer and his heroic statement of "let's roll" before he and his fellow selfless passengers charged the cockpit of Flight 93!

Take care and God Bless!

I'm so happy that you won the prize and have enjoyed using the program so much. I can imagine you will have lots of fun with it at Christmas time!

Thanks for linking this very special post to my Pinning & Singing Party. This is going to be a hard weekend for so many so thanks for giving me a moment to reflect on it.

Blessings and best wishes,
